More World of Disney NYC news: (courtesy Mickey News)
"Mickey Mouse will stop by the World of Disney store on Fifth Avenue on August 1 and 31 to greet store guests. In addition, nine of the 75 unique, 700-pound, 6-foot-tall Mickey statues, created in celebration of Mickey's 75th Anniversary, will be on display for guests to enjoy.
The nine statues displayed, part of the "Celebrate Mickey: 75 InspEARations" tour, will be: The Original Mouse Pad by Jamie Lee Curtis, Funny Bones by James Gandolfini, Space Mouse by Tom Hanks, Music Royalty by Sir Elton John, Mickey: In Yellow by Rosie O'Donnell, Clouded Conscience by Raven-Symoné, Big City Mouse by Kelly Ripa, Mousetaccioli by Doris Roberts and Ready for Action by Christy Carlson Romano.
Beginning August 1, World of Disney will have six exclusive, limited-edition pins modeled after six of the 75 InspEARation. Separately, a "Pin Pursuit" interactive competition for World of Disney guests, will also debut. Visitors will be given a map to navigate through the World of Disney store and answer trivia questions, all to receive a complimentary starter Mickey pin upon completion.
After visiting the World of Disney Store, the statues will be auctioned by Sotheby's in New York City on September 26, 2005 with all proceeds benefiting 50 charities.
Mickey Mouse will greet guests on August 1 and 31 during the following times: 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 7 p.m."
Also, all summer long, Goofy, Max and Pluto are doing meet & greets at the store!
I'm guessing that the statues are going to be there the whole month, not just on Aug. 1 and 31, but I'm looking for confirmation on that.
